    I have a customer who just brought me two 120 rolls of film provided with his Diana camera. They are in black paper wrappers with no identification. My experience has been that the film in question is usually b&w with similar development times to Ilford and Agfa 100 or 400 ASA films, does anyone know of any other film that they package that way?

    Lucky usually has a pale blue gummed band (if used) with "LUCKY" and Chinese characters on it. Shanghai is sealed with just a plain piece of masking tape. Both are ISO 100.

    Both of the two mentioned have very faint print on the backing paper. The shanghai has small edge print with just a few letters and no frame numbers . The Lucky has no edge print. at least on the rolls I have seen
